Alfonso de Sismondi: Twin brother, Bishop to the Pope (The twins hate each other and have since they were born.

Iseppa: Little sister, age 8 (Becoming more and more like Alessandra much to her brother’s dismay. She is no quiet little angel and a strong believer in her mother’s faith.

The Eldest daughter of a Jewish mother and Pagan father, Alessandra and her siblings were raised in a carefree world without the constant shove down your throat religious views that most children were raise in at the time. While her mother was rather religious she did not push her children to believe in her faith. Nor did their father push them to believe in his. As a result, Alessandra grew up believing in many things far beyond that of the teachings of the time. Her twin brother however, grew up strictly Catholic. Believing in the Catholic church above all things. How he grew up thus, neither his parents or sisters know. He also became a Bishop to Rodrigo Borgia. Much to his Parents dismay.

Alessandra herself was far from religious, preferring to believe in the Pagan Gods her father did, the arts, science, and anything that women of the time were told to not believe in. While at the same time respecting her mother’s religion.

While her parents tried everything they could to teach her to be a lady when she was little, it soon became clear that Alessandra was anything but a lady. She couldn’t learn French, she couldn’t sew in a straight line, and she didn’t play an instrument. But she could, dance well, sing, use a sword and ride, much to her father’s dismay, he realized he would have to teach her how to use a sword, ride and learn how to trade as his father had. She had a brain and wanted to learn. Unlike her friends.

During her teens, instead of marrying as her father wished, Alessandra became interested in matters of business, running the affairs of the estate, and gambling. Something women normally did not do. She did all anyway and did it all well. Getting into a bit of trouble gambling, Alessandra meant a friend of her mother’s family Durante della Grappa. Whose family owned a bank. Durante helped Alessandra, and the two became fast friends.

However, through this association, her family got wind of her gambling, and as a result, Toma` decided it was time to give his daughter something important to do. Rome had a new Pope of which his son was a Bishop under. It was important to send a member of the Sismondi family to meet the new Pope and become friends with him. Alessandra, being extremely beautiful, was qualified.
